HVAC Flat-Rate Pricing
Flat-Rate HVAC Pricing Benefits
A flat-rate refers to the price a customer pays for a service. It means a few things for the valued customers of True Energy Smart Air HVAC services:
- No matter how long the repair or service to complete takes, the price stays the same.
- The repair prices are itemized and listed in a binder so there are no gimmicks, wild guesses or pricing games.
- You will never be surprised by the cost of any repair. You will always know the price.
The HVAC specialist will not be going to a van or making a phone call only to return with a magic price. In effect, you are receiving a flat-rate every time you receive a written or verbal estimate to do a job. Homeowners want to know what they will have to pay prior to having the work done.
Flat-rate pricing has been around since commerce began. Good examples of it are utility costs. You pay the same for a unit of electricity or gas. Your bill depends on the usage, of course, but the unit cost is the same for everyone who uses it.
Flat-rate manuals are actually used throughout the HVAC industry. The prices are based on timed studies of the actual work as it was being performed. It assists in developing uniform pricing for the same 100 or so heating and air conditioning repairs that get performed 80% of the time.
Another benefit of flat-rate pricing is the effect it has on the employees. Since he may be paid per job, he has an incentive to complete more jobs so he can make more money. He is rewarded for his efficiency.
Flat-rate pricing also helps make sure the estimate is accurate. While there may be some small things that cannot be accounted for until a job is actually being performed, there should be no big surprises (although occasionally that does occur through no fault of the contractor or the homeowner). That’s because flat-rate pricing ensures that the job will be given a thorough and comprehensive diagnostic analysis before any price is suggested.
